When Outlander's Claire Fraser (played by Caitriona Balfe) first told Brianna (Sophie Skelton) her father wasn't Frank Randall (Tobias Menzies), the man who raised her, but in fact a highlander named Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan) from 18th Century Scotland, her daughter was horrified. Brianna believed her mother was delusional and trying to hurt her by making up lies. However as Claire showed her evidence that Jamie was her father, she slowly came around to the idea and accepted her mother was a time-traveller.

However, while Claire travelled back to the 18th Century Scotland to reunite with her true love once she learned Jamie was alive, Brianna wasn't so keen to meet her father.

Instead she built up a relationship with Roger MacKenzie (Richard Rankin) and the two became romantically involved.

But a tender moment between the two was cut from season three which involved Brianna taking a swipe at her father.

In the script from season three, episode four, Roger remarks: "Your mother's a very determined woman.

It's clear from the deleted scene that Brianna isn't as bothered by the news that her real father is alive.

This is of course to be expected given that she was so close to Frank, who raised her and sparked her interest in history.

Thankfully, after a fall out with Roger and learning Claire and Jamie were expected to die in a fire, Brianna did decide to travel back in time.

Season four saw Brianna come face-to-face with Jamie for the first time and it was a rather awkward encounter.
